What kinds of formal innovations characterize Asian American literatures of the 21st century? As contemporary Asian American literary production moves away from the tropes, genres, and formal characteristics that have been identified as ’Asian American,’ how do critics read and teach these texts? Essays addressing questions of form, experimentation, the literary marketplace, non-essentialist reading, and the disarticulated relationship between race and representation are particularly welcome. 1-page abstracts, c.v.s, to tina.chen@psu.edu
